Hi my name is Harry Collins. I was born and raised in Saskatoon. I had the privilege to learn and grow my tennis game through Sask First tennis , a provincially run tennis program for elite tennis players in the early 90's. I competed provincially and nationally thru my junior career, and continued competing on and off through my early 20's. I took some time away from tennis in my late 20's, but returned to compete provincially and through the prairies from the age 29 years till the present. I am presently a Certified Club Pro 1 Tennis Coach and am ranked provincially and nationally. I have a passionate and committed love of the game of tennis and am excited to bring that passion to Riverside Badminton Tennis Club.

During the lessons we will be explaining - the court, the rules and strategy of the game. Then practice play with what we have learned and further explanation, answering questions and ongoing coaching.
This game is as contagious as it is enjoyable and so easy to play.
